Modeling beveloid gear I have a complex gear, that I will probably have to make an exact CAD model of it, because I will need it for multiaxis CNC machine. From what I found out until now, I won't be able to make it with classical gear manufacturing methods, at least near my location.

I have a batch of about 200 files that when the machine was designed, we used a custom property template to set things like description, manufacturer, material, etc. Today, we use a different template that while it includes the same information, some items are removed. We did this because we use a program to push the solidworks data into an ordering system.

I've been trying to design something like a shower head, where I split a single flow of fluid into many smaller channels. I've gotten it like this with the curved part all hollowed out on the inside, but I can't seem to place the holes. I've tried using hole wizard but I keep getting an error.

Globoid worm gears I have just gone through the worm gear tutorial and sadly it is flawed....The tooth geometry is drawn perpendicular to the shaft and allowed to wrap around the projected curve in the video where as this is not how the teeth are generated.

I am trying to make a model of a part per the print below. I and doing an extruded cut thru both sides from the front plane to get the 25° angled cut as shown with the red lines on the drawing. I cannot figure out how to have the cut be straight and have it end at the bottom as a circular feature as shown by the red arrow. My brain is not working today and I'm sure it is easy to do.

Bodies won't "Combine" I keep getting the error, "No bodies remain after combine operation". As I understand it, it's a problem with zero-thickness geometry (mating surfaces which are exact) I've searched the forum and tried the few answers I found, including:

Surface thicken failed I've been trying to thicken this fan blade by 0.2 mm , but each time I get "thicken surface has failed". The blade does have a lot of sides due to its organic shape so I'm wondering if that's what causes the error.

Fairly simple question: Solidworks makes the text that you would insert in a sketch on a part bubble text so that you are able to extrude it if need be. I need to do the exact opposite and etch the text out with a CNC punch tool.

I'm working on a part and for some reason, a face is now missing from a solid body. The face is there, the transparency is turned off, but it is completely transparent and is see through the faces behind it. Solidworks 2015 is being used.

I am trying to do an extruded feature with an inward draft on a part I am modelling. but instead of the draft being at an angle I want it to be at a 65 degree radius. Is this possible or is there another tool which does something similar? Draft at a radius?

I'm trying to adjust the number of decimal places in the "Measure" tool, but when I click on the "Units/Precision" button, the top part of the box gets cleared out, and I can't do anything else. I have to close the command and restart it to do anything. I have the units in the document properties set for 3 decimal places, but there are times I want a little more precision, and I can't get it to work. This is rather frustrating.

SolidWorks Enhancement Requests From time to time while reviewing SolidWorks forum discussions I see instances where customers are asking for new functionality or an improvement to an existing behavior in our SolidWorks Products. Though SolidWorks employees frequently review the discussions on the forum, the most efficient way to communicate these requests is to submit an enhancement request through the enhancement request link on the customer portal.

When adding a fillet to an edge it is convex, what happens if you want a concave fillet? Are you looking for a concave fillet on an outer edge, or a concave fillet on an inner edge? Some people distinguish between fillets (concave) and rounds (convex).

Is it possible to change the default setting of the "slot" Hole Wizard function to center to center instead of the current tangent to tangent setting? For example, if I want a 1/4" loose clearance hole slot that is 1" long center to center I can input a length of "1 - 9/32" but it would be much more convenient if there was a center to center length setting!

equal curvature relation confusion I'm following this tip on how to add equal curvature relation between a spline and a surface, however, I'm having an understanding which planes he refers to by the"face border by that edge". I've tried control + select the spline, the edge, front plane then the equal curvature relation but nothing happens.
